don't think its a bug. This is eshell not handling redirection correclty
and is something that cannot be easily fixed. Bottom line, don't use
redirection in eshell.

If you look carefully at the output you can see that what is not handled is the parameters to "ls". If you try "ls -1" it will work.

So, yes it is a problem with redirection, but only with the (implicit) arguments to the first program.
